not proposed cutting contrary to what jon said. and meaning they would follow eligible children to any district or charter school or enable them to enroll in a tutoring program or take courses on line. this step would do three things immediately. first, it would render irrelevant a host of existing regulations on the use of title one funds in particular that burden school district in various ways and constrain innovation and make their lives more difficult and drive up administrative costs. secondly it would put the federal government behind principles that public education funding should be used to empower students, not to empower sluggish and change resistant bureaucracy. and if you eliminate a practical obstacle to creating waited student funding systems with a lot of people are trying to do at the state and local level in that obstacle is the lack of affordability of federal funds, the grants that would be available under affordability program proposals are relatively small. this is not something that would immediately generate large vouchers for all of 4 kids in america. it would accomplis
